Health Center Facility Loan Guarantee Program
Bureau of Primary Health Care, Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis
The HRSA Health Center Facility Loan Guarantee Program
facilitates access to capital funding and reduces
financing costs for health centers by guaranteeing up to
80% of financing needed to support capital infrastructure
projects. After approving a loan guarantee, HRSA monitors
the loan repayment status and assesses the
operational/financial viability of the health center
during the life of the loan.
Funding may be used for the construction, expansion,
alteration, renovation, and modernization of health
center medical facilities.
Eligible health centers must be active Health Center
Program awardees, as defined under section 330 of the
Public Health Services Act.
Amount of funding
While there is no limit on loan size, the program has
typically guaranteed loans for projects of $5 - $7
million or more.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Health
centers interested in applying should email LGProgram@hrsa.gov and
provide the following information:
- Health center name and H80 Award Number
- Anticipated project scope
- Type of construction activity (new construction,
renovation, new site, replacement facility)
- Total project cost
- Financing needs and potential lender(s)
- Timeline and status of project planning and financing
HRSA staff will follow-up to identify the specific items
that will be needed for a full application.
